Hi there, first post; long time lurker. I was wondering if a scam like the following can/is be done. I bought 1000 shares of stock and placed a stop loss order fairly low at about a 5% drop in price. The stock has very low volume. The stop loss is for the full 1000 shares which was quite large compared to the other lots on the book. About 30 minutes later, the price spikes downward to my stop price triggering my stop order and then moves quickly back up to the price it was before; all within about two minutes. Could someone, such as the Specialist (it was an AMEX stock) see my relatively huge stop order and clue someone in on it so all someone has to do is sell a small amount of shares to drive the price down momentarily to trigger my order and then subsequently buy my shares? Thanks!
